      Hello.
      No reads on villain.

      Should I've 3bet his flop-check raise? I called to see if a safe turn card hits in which case i would've raised villain all-in.
      But unfortunately: A:heart:

      How should I proceed, giving that turn card? Call (at the best case 11 outs) and fold to a river bet seems standard to me. Furthermore there is also a small chance that villain doesn't bet the river.
      Also I had no clue what his small turn bet meant. Was he scared of the ace, or was he only trying to price me in?

      Stack sizes are very important here so it is best to always include them.

      So assuming 100BB effective stacks call for the reasons you stated. Not many players I imagine at NL5 will c/r draws nor will they play monsters so fast either. I'd even call a smallish river bet unimproved. Villain could well hold TT,JJ,KK,AA,9X,trash.

      I'm not too sure if 3-betting the flop is too good here since you will then all too easily become pot-committed. The c/r is a bit scary and it wouldn't therefore be a bad idea to see a cheap SD if possible. MHO.
